"A desert," South African author Nadine Gordimer wrote, "is a place without expectation." She clearly wasn't a Rage Against the Machine fan. The band comes to the furnace heat of Indio this weekend with three days of rock and dance music and a show-closing reunion that has brought giddy fans from around the world: Rage is back and playing its first gig since 2000. Guitarist Tom Morello just smiled this week when asked how the band sounds in rehearsals. "Ferocious."

Atmosphere and resonance were sorely missing in Bonney's show at LunaPark on Tuesday.
